That's true, LK. Good point.

It's not like you're going to be in there for a 3-hour lab or something.

I can understand he prefers to use the men's but has he not used the ladies room while growing up? Can he not continue to do so at least just while at school? I mean a bath room is a bathroom. And when you have to go I don't see the point of splitting hairs about which one you use.

Trannys are still the gender they are born as. No exceptions for the dirty f******s

What piques my interest in this dilemma is, transgenders are asking to "impose" on my space and make me uncomfortable to the possibility that a deviated individual could take advantage of the situation.

Yet, transgenders appear to be dismissing the "rights" of those using gender-specific facilities.

There seems to be no compromise in "their" platform. It's fine to infringe on me but not on you.

I don't really see what the big deal is. Go into the bathroom of your choice, no one's going to stop you.

Nothing was really said before your remarks other than a couple of bad jokes. So you are saying that I am not a homophobe even though I do not agree you should be able to use any restroom you want? I doubt that. People like you want a fight with traditional people like me. I can agree with you on one issue but disagree with another then you will call me a homophobe. You started the name calling so I jumped in for the fun of it.

"You are the one that is saying anyone that does not agree with you is a homophobe. I'm not a homophobe because I don't agree with this thread. When it comes to the LGTG I view it as to each their own. I don't even have a problem with gay marriage because it does not affect me. People like you are itching to call someone homophobic only to alienate the strait people that support some gay rights."
My sentence was a general statement involving some people below me who were making crude comments. I'm going to say what you told me earlier, don't twist my words around and pretend that sentence involves you somewhere along the way.

So many homophobic and transphobic folks living in this county

I don't take anything you say as an insult. I find it funny.

I don't claim to be an expert on Transgender people. The more you respond to me the dumber your argument sounds. What do you want? A sign to wear on your chest? By what YOU said you would need a way to prove who you are. Germany did this to the Jews and it didn't work out in their favor. The conclusion is it's a stupid idea and the law suit needs to be tossed out.

"By your screen name you should know something about transgender people"
Transhumanism and transgenderism are completely separate things, a google search would have saved you from looking like an idiot. [I decided to insult you back for insulting me, fair enough?]

"Transgender people say their brains sexuality is the opposite of their body"
Correct.

"their sexual orientation to be what their mind thinks it is instead of what their body says."
Huh? Sexual orientation has nothing to do with transgenderism. Homosexuality is separate from transgenderism.

"If transgenders can use any bathroom they choose then I can claim that in my head I'm a woman so I can use the girls room"
Not that easy. You must first be evaluated by a professional to make sure you are suffering from GID (gender identity disorder) before you are even allowed to take HRT (hormone replacement therapy), which is essential to all transgenders out there, but obviously I have little to no knowledge in this area like you.

" If you allow a man to share the woman's restroom someone somewhere will get raped because it was convenient."
You should learn appropriate pronouns, you might end up offending a transman or a transwoman one day.

"If you can not understand what I said I can post a picture for you but I have my doubts that would help someone of dim wits."
Resulting to insulting shows your maturity.

You didn't have gender specific outhouses?

When growing up our bathroom was okay for boys and girls as long as you could lock the door when you went in so transgender wouidn't matter.

There's a simple and scientific solution to this problem. We do away with male and female designated restrooms. Instead, we replace them with XX and XY restrooms. Test every baby when born to make sure what group they are in and that's it. This will also be the new designation for drivers licenses and F***b*** genders

"Don't twist my words. If you reread what I said you will see I said perverts will use this as an excuse to use the opposite sexes restroom to satisfy their twisted perversions. I never said anything negative about transgender people"
How could perverts use this as an excuse to use the opposite sexes restroom? You're implying only transgenders (since these folks will be the only ones allowed to use the opposite sexes restroom) are taken advantage of their diagnosis to be peeping toms. Maybe write your sentences in a comprehensive or concise way if you don't want to be misunderstood.

My sentences are easy to understand but you have to be proficient in reading and comprehension. By your screen name you should know something about transgender people but you clearly do not know what you are talking about. Transgender people say their brains sexuality is the opposite of their body so they want their sexual orientation to be what their mind thinks it is instead of what their body says. If transgenders can use any bathroom they choose then I can claim that in my head I'm a woman so I can use the girls room. Even though I'm dressed like a normal man act like a normal man no one would be able to stop me from using the opposite sex restroom. If they can then I can or you are stepping on my new rights. You can bet perverts would take advantage of this. There are some sick people out there. Some have put hidden cameras in the toilets. I even heard of a guy that made a fake commode that he could get in so a woman's butt would be in his face. This would open the door for more crazy people to harm someone. If you allow a man to share the woman's restroom someone somewhere will get raped because it was convenient. If you can not understand what I said I can post a picture for you but I have my doubts that would help someone of dim wits.

"I want to know, who do you expect to be policing the restrooms to determine if only diagnosed transgenders are using the facilities?"
That's an excellent point and I have no answer for this one.
